10 Clothing Wrinkle Removing Hacks
You might wear the latest in designer fashion, the freshest accessories, and some exquisite perfume, if wrinkles keep your clothing company, it’s all in vain. Whether we like it or not, we need to iron our clothing sooner or later.
Maybe you don’t need to do that every day or you have plenty of clothing that are just fine without being ironed and still, you have those few pieces that, without meeting the master iron, will make you look simply neglected, unkempt. Whenever you’re in need of wrinkle-free garments, gather your energy and put that iron to work.
What about those moments when you need an iron, don’t have one and your outfit is a museum of wrinkles? No need to worry. You can bid those wrinkles farewell goodbye in a matter of minutes. Without an iron. Without throwing them outside your window. Without buying new wrinkle-free clothing. Here’s how.
- The hair dryer
The hair dryer was invented to dry your hair as its name suggests it. That doesn’t mean it can’t be used to help us with other things. Like when you spilled water on your blouse and you use it to dry it. Well, a hair dryer comes in handy when you want to remove the wrinkles on your clothes, too. Simply hang your shirt or garment up and blow dry it from an inch or two away. As simple as that. They say this trick works best with cotton clothing, though.
- The metal pot
Don’t have an iron at your disposal? Turn a metal pot into one. Just fill it with water and let it boil. When the water has boiled, spill it out and use the bottom of the pot like it would be your iron. It can’t be simpler than this.
- The mattress
Wherever you are, you will most probably have a mattress. Well, sometimes that’s all you need to de-wrinkle your clothing. All you have to do is to roll your wrinkled garment and put it under your mattress when it’s all wrapped up. Leave it for an hour or so and then take it out. Your garment should be wrinkle-free. So simple and cheap!
- Damp towels
This one is among the oldest and most popular tricks. Simple, too. Just get some damp towels and place your wrinkled garment underneath it. Press down gently in order to remove the creases. It’s true that you might need to hang it out to dry a little after that but this one method is a great option when there’s no iron there.
- The kettle
If there’s no day going by without a tea and the kettle is often at work, you might use it to rid your clothing of wrinkles as well. Just use a steaming tea kettle a foot away from your garment and wrinkles should vanish away. And you’ve got water ready for tea, too.
- The shower
Just like a steaming kettle, the shower can help your clothes look decent if not impeccable without you making too much of an effort. Whether you’re home or away, use the shower you have at your disposal to get the creases on your clothing out. Just hang up your wrinkled garments inside your bathroom while you’re taking a shower. It should take about 10 minutes for the steam inside to smooth the creases on your clothing. It’s quite a hit among travelers.
- Professional de-wrinkling sprays
Yup, such products are already available in stores. Created for people who are always on the go, travelers or people like you and me who prefer not to iron, the professional sprays are probably among the best solutions to eliminate creases on your clothing without using the iron or anything else. Spray it on your clothing and smooth it out while the garment is still damp. Hang the clothing out to dry after that. Plus, make sure you just dampen the garments and don’t soak them.
It is said that it works best with cotton-blend fabrics. Some sprays might leave water spots on certain fabrics. Therefore, make sure you test it first on a portion of your garment that is not that visible. Just check the stores or the Internet for such products and you’ve got yourself a piece of ”iron” you can take and use wherever you go.
- The dryer and the dryer sheets
Most washing machines come with options for de-wrinkling clothing. Well, if yours doesn’t include such a program, you can simply use the dryer to get those wrinkles off your garments. Just toss the creased garment in your dryer, add some damp dryer sheets or a damp handkerchief, set you’re the dryer to medium and let it spin for about 15 minutes. Some people even say using ice cubes and running your dryer on high heat for a few minutes will create the steam needed to de-wrinkle your clothing. They say it’s one of the best ways for your clothes to look neat without being ironed.
- The flat iron
If straightening your hair is part of your beauty care routine, you’ve just found a way to iron your clothing. Although a flat iron won’t help you take the wrinkles out of a large garment, it will surely help you eliminate creases on small portions like the collar or the cuffs. Just make sure you clean your flat iron first and remove any thermal heat-protectant spray trace.
Now, you might be surprised to find this one item in our list but they say it’s one of the best ways to get those creases off your garment. The standard white-vinegar is helpful in keeping your clothing neat. Just mist your garments with 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water and simply let them air-dry. Simple, cheap, and easy.
With all of the above mentioned methods, keeping your clothing wrinkle-free even when you have no iron at your disposal, is as simple as 1, 2, 3. In most cases it’s just a matter of minutes to make your garments look decent.
